With so many franchise options out there, why pick The Fruit Stand?
Build Your Own Bowls! The first place of its kind to get amazing quality fruit that's cut fresh daily at an affordable price. Easy to follow and read menu allows for faster ordering and more sales per hour. We can build orders faster and with perfect customer satisfaction, because the customer can see us make their bowl.
A huge factor to owning your own business is the freedom, but not every business is created equal, while other smoothie shops are open 7 days a week and 12 plus hours a day to achieve the same unit sales as The Fruit Stand. When are you able to have time off for yourself and your family?
The Fruit Stand is open 6 days a week from 9am to 7pm, We have proven that we can have the same great sales (even better, in some cases) within a shorter time span.
Here are a list of benefits to having less hours than our competitors.
1. Work Life Balance for you and your employees.
2. Less hours worked, means employees give better customer service and in return more repeat customers.
3. More time for you to be able to operate multiple locations.
Why start your own business?
Before I started The Fruit Stand in 2021, I was working at an office job I hated. I truly felt that I had no other option in my life and that I had to make the best out of the job I had. I was feeling an overwhelming amount of pressure to stay at the job because it was safe and a "Good Job".
Everyday I would look around at my coworkers who had been there for years and I could see how unhappy and stuck they were. I said to myself I did not want to become like them. So one Saturday I left my office keys at my desk and walked out.
Yes it's a lot of hard work, but when you are doing that hard work for yourself and building a business for yourself and your family, there's no better feeling.
What we offer is the ability to set your own path to success and create the life style you want.
Grow to multiple location like we have done or operate one location and maximum your free time.
Either way, the knowledge and experience as a "The Fruit Stand" owner will open many other doors in your life, you'll meet many different people and truly learn the amazing feeling creating a business can bring.
After owning and operating our first store and opening a second, we have learned all the possible pain points of running a business. With that being said our biggest issue our first year was being able to keep our great products in stock all the time. That is why as a franchise you will have access to purchasing 90% of everything you will need to operate your business from our own in house distribution.
The benefits of this, is you are able to buy as you need without worrying about running out of product, as well as getting wholesale pricing without having to buy wholesale quantities.
As we open more locations, we will able able to buy in greater volume increasing our savings even more.
